Presented at Globians Film Festival 2005: A saga about Israeli society from five feminine point of view. The film examines the meaning of identity in a land of immigrants like Israel -- in the search for roots, the tension between tradition and modernity, between past and present, between Israeli identity and Jewish identity, as well as in the difficulties faced by other ethnic identities. In the mirror that the five women hold up to us, we will see images different from the ones we had before the beginning of the film. This is part 1 of 6 parts focusing on Regina coming to Israel from Ukraine where she was born.

breathtaking view on everyday life in Israel
We were very proud to have been able to present this extensive documentary series by Ziva Postec at the 2005 Globians Film Festival. The more you watch and listen to the lifes of Regina from the Ukraine, Aziza and Lea born in Israel, Rebecca from Ethiopia and Naomi born in England the more you understand the complexities and difficulties of Israeli identities. I learned a lot about something that is sometimes hard to understand, especially once you are German (like me).
